West Seattle ferries: Temporary boat change to cut capacity

December 7, 2012 at 11:45 am | In Seen at sea, Transportation, West Seattle news | 3 Comments

Washington State Ferries is warning of long lines on the Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth route next week, as the 64-car Salish replaces the 124-car Issaquah, attributed to “necessary vessel repairs.” WSF says this will start Monday and continue “for approximately one week,” and adds that the Salish does not have wi-fi.

  1. Not that it matters but, based on how I read the releases, it isn’t the Issaquah going in for repairs but rather the Sealth. The Issaquah moves to the SEA-Bremerton route for next week.

  2. The exact wording of the alert we received was: “Due to necessary vessel repairs, the 64-car Salish will replace the 124-car Issaquah beginning Monday, Dec. 10 for approximately one week. Customers should anticipate long lines on the route during this time. Wi-fi will not be available on the Salish. We apologize for the inconvenience.” But of course that could mean ANY vessel. Thanks. – TR

  3. That can only mean lighter traffic on the bridge
    be 60 cars per boat
    Are they adding additional runs to make up the capacity?
